Get a "Death Grip" on that gun!
It all started when Nils Jonasson (pro shooter for Canik) asked us to increase the amount of checkering on his TF backstrap. He likes to maintain a "death grip" on his pistol, and checkering helps lock the gun in his hand. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!
TF's "Death Grip" has checkering spanning the entire gripping surface. Compared to competing models, the Death Grip has more checkering in contact with your hand plus a high level of weight, thus more of the control-enhancing features you want!
Weight and felt recoil are directly related. By adding weight a lightweight gun calms down, creating a smoother-shooting, slower-kicking, more-neutrally-balanced handgun. Brass is best in most situations, but if you're carrying the gun around all day, you might want aluminum instead.
- Machined from bar stock H02 Brass or 6061 aluminum
- Ridiculous volumes of high-traction checkering CUT into each piece (not cast) for maximum "grip" and control
- Built-in mount point for factory and TF magwells (typical "tailhook" style)
- Lowers the center of gravity (better balance, calmer handling, less top-heavy)
Weight: 3 ounces
Color: Shiny Brass

I like the grip and its grippIness feels great in jand and on the gun, only problem os that my mags wont drop free anymore, installing it was a bit tight, and it seems to add just enough pressure to make me have mag removal issues… i may have to file the inside of the grip to make the mags drop free again….
Installation was super easy. The texture feels great and the added weight helps balance recoil. Great product and ppl!
I've been running a VP9L with TF Border Specials quite successfully for three years now, and when this new 'Death Grip" popped up, I decided to configure the pistol with a TF brass magwell and this backstrap. Adds a ton of positive grip, not so aggressive that it draws blood, the bit of added mass is nice, the pistol tracks very well. Easy install, and the magwell fit is quite precise, requiring just a couple taps to properly interface with the backstrap. For those wondering, the shape is very similar to the large size backstrap, which was an ideal choice for my purposes.
This is a really solid backstrap, and while the added weight is great, the texture is what really sells it for me. If side panels get made, even in just aluminum, I'd buy them for the texture alone.
